The University's founders could not have imagined what has been created a century later: 33,000 students, a £320M turnover (with a £100M+ research budget) and a vastly expanded estate. 55% of the undergraduates are now female - a reversal of percentages within not much more than a decade. Above all, there is a now a scale of academic achievement that is second to none. There is much to celebrate and this anniversary provides the occasion.
